Following the news that ABS-CBN will produce the Philippine version of Doctor Foster, rumors began circulating that Charlie Dizon had been cast to play the mistress in the series.
This was denied by Charlie. According to the actress, she has not received any word regarding the project.
“Actually, wala pa talaga sa akin nasasabi na ganoon. Nagugulat na lang din ako sa mga balitang lumalabas. Pero wala pa talaga,” she said in Star Magic's virtual conference.
Would she say yes if she would be offered a role in the series?
“Of course. Napanood ko po talaga 'yung Korean version noon. But sa ngayon po talaga wala pang sinasabi talaga sa akin na gano'n,” she said.
Dr. Foster recently had its remake in South Korea titled The World of the Married Couple which became a massive hit.
On April 13, ABS-CBN announced that it had forged an agreement with BBC Studios to produce the Philippine remake.
“We are most grateful to BBC Studios for entrusting ABS-CBN Entertainment with the Philippine version of Doctor Foster. It is a privilege for us to be able to produce this highly engaging and relatable story for the Filipino audience," ABS-CBN COO of broadcast Cory Vidanes said in a statement.
"A scorned woman’s strength is real as she fights to stay whole when the marriage and family she values most is falling apart. True to our commitment to serve the Filipino, we are excited to create our own retelling of this beautiful story, to see the characters come alive with unique Filipino elements that will definitely excite our audiences," she remarked.
